I can officially call myself a New Yorker! It's been one year since I left the beautiful Pacific Northwest (aka Seattle) for a whole new adventure in Central New York.

Moving to any city, let alone a city across the entire United States, presents its own challenges, especially if you don't know a single person. But this year has been full of adventure, new friends, love, and AMAZING food. It's impossible to look through my photos and memories from the last year and pick favorites, but here are some that stand out, either because they were just so much fun or because they were so Central New York.
